Nitric oxide (NO) plays a major role as a neuronal messenger molecule. NO has been assumed to act as a retrograde signalling molecule that modulates transmitter release. Acetylcholine (ACh) is known to function as a typical neurotransmitter. In the present work the presence of both transmitters (NO and ACh) and their possible relations in the rabbit spinal cord were examined. In our experiments histochemical methods for the visualisation of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and NADPH diaphorase… CONTINUE READING
